Built In/Victorian Gutter
Looking to preserve the look of your historic residence while still updating gutters? The built-in, or Victorian, gutter might be just what you are looking for. These types of gutters are also known as box gutters and are very similar to what is available for commercial applications. Keep the integrity of your historic home by installing these gutters today.
Features of Victorian Gutters
As their name implies, Victorian gutters have been in use since the 19th century. They are integrated into the roof and therefore do not detract from the beauty of the home. But, because of this feature, they are very difficult to install as a new gutter system on an old roof.
One of the most common things that can go wrong with this style of gutters is simple neglect. The phrase “Out of sight, out of mind” most certainly applies here. Remember to prolong the life of your gutters by removing debris from them. This prevents damage from standing water in the gutters which can lead to costly repairs.
